What Went Right 26 DEC 2016
Once again, three stories from the mainstream media about 'what went right' as opposed to what went wrong.
Eden's quirky tradition during the Sydney to Hobart by Jessica Haynes (ABC New South Wales)
The coastal town of Eden in south-east NSW is practically the last landfall possible for yachts involved in the Sydney to Hobart race which have to pull out early. The town "celebrates" this with their own tongue-in-cheek trophy for the first boat to make landfall there.
Christmas Lunch in the Park for Perth's less fortunate sees 2,300 gather for spectacular feast by Hayley Roman (ABC Western Australia)
Covering Mission Australia's "Christmas Lunch in the Park" event, which is volunteer-run, and now in its 41st year of operation.
'Muslims for Peace': Islam group letterboxes Hobart to counter One Nation, Reclaim Australia by Sallese Gibson (ABC Tasmania)
Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Tasmania have delivered leaflets to houses in Hobart in order to spread understanding and reduce hatred.
There's my three for the day. If you've found any stories about things which have "gone right", I'd appreciate it if you shared them in the comments.
